Erdogan’s Muslim Summit in Istanbul

On Friday, a 2-day Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s PR meeting in Istanbul came to an end. It was attended by head of states and government officials from 30 Muslim nation-states. The rulers of the remaining 27 members of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation including Egypt’s Crypto Jew military dictator Gen. al-Sisi, Jordanian King Abdullah II, and Syrian president Bashar al-Assad did not even bother to attend the meeting.

The theme of the conference was ‘Unity and solidarity for Justice and Peace’, but some of its participants like Erdogan and King Salman of Saudi Arabia made it a jokes. Both of them are among the evildoers who want to bring a violent regime change in Syria for Israel’s interests. Most of countries that attended the meeting have not recognized the occupation of Palestine by the European Jews, but Turkey was the first Muslim-majority nation to recognize the occupation in 1949.

Erdogan in his closing address made several absurd statements, such as, why are we expecting others to solve the problems of Muslims? We should be able to solve our own problems. The OIC shall be there for eventual purpose. And why do Muslim nations suffer from terrorism the most? Who is behind this terror? Which countries stand behind this issue? This needs to be addressed.

Erdogan addressed the plight of Palestinian people who are not supported by Saudi and other Arab ‘royals’, by saying: “The weeping of Palestine under Israeli pressure is a deep wound in the heart of the Muslim world. An independent Palestinian state must be established to solve the conflict in the region.”

Erdogan also advised the participants not to exploit Sunni-Shia sectarianism and struggle for a united Ummah – referring to Saudi ‘royal’ policy towards Iran, Iraq and Bahrain.

I’m sure Erdogan know the answers to all his questions – because he and Saudi ‘royals’ are major parts of some of the problems the 2 billion Muslims are facing around the world.

King Salman of Saudi Arabia blamed Iran and Labanese Islamic resistance Hizbullah of terrorism for helping Arab countries targeted by the His Majesty’s regime especially Syria, Bahrain, Yemen, Lebanon and Iraq.

Lebanese Al-Manar TV responded to Saudi accusation by saying: “While speeches delivered at the OIC asserted the importance of dialogue to resolve the problems of the Islamic world, Saudi Arabia continues its efforts in targeting Iran and Hizbullah by accusing them of terrorism. These accusations caused heated debates in the OIC discussions.”

Iranian president Dr. Hassan Rouhani accompanied by foreign minister Dr. Javad Zarif attended the conference. In his speech Rouhani condemned rulers of Muslim countries who are creating division among Muslim nation-states.

Iran does not support tension and instability in the region, said Rouhani, adding that the Islamic Republic pursues policies aimed at fostering solidarity and unity in the Muslim world,” Rouhani said.

Dr. Zarif  said that Riyadh’s effort for the inclusion of four paragraphs in the draft declaration against the Islamic Republic and one more against Hizbullah were against the spirit of Islamic solidarity that can only serve the interests of the Israeli regime.

In protest to Saudi Arabia’s anti-Iran agenda, president Rouhani, Dr. Zarif and the entire Iranian delegate boycotted the closing ceremony on Friday. Rouhani instead flew to Ankara to meet his counterpart president Erdogan.
